Sleep Journal


If you have problems sleeping, it might help to track your sleep habits in a notebook or journal. This is called a sleep journal. It can help you see what keeps you from getting a good night's sleep. It also helps your doctor know more about what affects your sleep.

Fill out your sleep journal every morning for 1 to 2 weeks. Answer the following questions.

  • What time did you go to bed last night?
  • How long did it take to fall asleep?
  • What time did you get up?
